Product Description

From the Author

My aims in writing this book and it's content.
Wetheriggs (or Schofield's) Pottery has managed to survive when most other country potteries failed with the advent of industrialisation. My aim in writing this book was to record its transition from a locally based, brownware pottery to one which made "Art Wares" for a growing tourist market in the early part of the 20th century. The 104 page book consists of a history of the site and the Schofield family with 34 black and white illustrations followed by a catalogue of 197 pieces of their wares illustrated in colour. These Art Wares were distributed throughout the country and can be found in almost any town in the UK.

Wetheriggs pottery was restored some years ago, but has now been turned into an animal sanctuary, which came as a bit of a surprise when we visited. The bottle kiln is surrounded by llama dung. The staff didn't know much about the pottery, but this book answered all my questions, and shows the types of pottery produced at different periods. I'd like to put the author in touch with the people there now, but can't track her down.
